Jared Leto To Star In Yakuza Flick 'The Outsider' It pays to remember that Oscar winner Jared Leto doesn't star in movies very often, and tends to be particular about the roles he takes.

Preproduction work had already begun for the project, however it has been put on hold while the producers look for a new lead.
